Susan Morse - The Habit
Saturday, April 21st
There is an unmistakable gleam in Ma’s eye, and her absolute composure both appalls me and rips my heart from its root. I burst into tears. The gauntlet is thrown.
From the time she was conceived, Susan Morse was her mother’s “special” child. For Susan, special translated into becoming her incorrigible mother’s frazzled caretaker, a role that continued into adulthood. Now she finds herself as part of the sandwich generation, responsible for a woman whose eighty-five years have been single-mindedly devoted to identifying The Answer To Everything. And, this week’s Answer looks like it may be the real thing.
Susan’s mother is becoming a nun.
Susan Morse was educated at Williams College and has worked as an actress in L.A. and New York. These days, she divides her time between Philadelphia and New Orleans, where her husband, David, is filming Treme for HBO. She has edited fiction, although this book is nonfiction. Mostly. She promises.
Susan Morse is discussing and signing her book, The Habit.
